This is a beautiful church and I would highly recommend getting married there. I have heard bride and groom have to wait years to reserve this church, however, we got lucky and booked it in 6 months. The only negative thing about the church is the volunteer coordinators are very bossy and are very impatient. The price is expensive too book your date, but it is worth every penny. Congratulations to all the new brides, you are going to have a blast!

Old St. Pat's is a beautiful venue and Father Hurley was exceptional. It is VERY costly to get married in here. Also, the day of our rehearsal, we were told to show up by 5:45pm at the latest for our 6pm rehearsal. It was below zero and we arrived at 5:40 (along with several little kids/babies). The doors were locked and we were locked out in the cold for about 10 minutes. Once we were finally let inside, we got a speech on the history of the church instead of really rehearsing our wedding. It was weird. THe readers did not even get a chance to walk up to the podium and practice on the microphone. It seemed the volunteer was more interested in telling us her story than making sure we were all comfortable with what we were doing on the wedding day. She also yelled at my photographer AND aunt for standing in the aisle - instead of guiding them to where was a proper place to stand to take photos - she yelled at them thru the church that they were in the way. Not the greatest rehearsal - however, the actual wedding day was perfect (that particular volunteer was not there on the actual wedding day).

The wedding coordinator was IMPOSSIBLE to get a hold of, but once that was taken care of, everything went pretty smoothly. You could not ask for a nicer bunch of people, or a more beautiful church in downtown Chicago.

Old St. Patrick's Church is a beautifully restored historic landmark in the city of Chicago. The celtic artwork within the church is absolutely gorgeous and is the perfect setting for a truly irish affair.

We go to church here so this was the only place we wanted to get married. It takes quite a long time to get the date you really want. We booked our September wedding 14 months in advanced and there were only 2 weekends left and 4 time slots when we made it.

They have put together a very thorough book which explains all the rules, church layouts, ideas, etc. for your ceremony. It was incredibly helpful. They are very serious about the rules and you must follow them. They also have a music fair they do a few times a year where you can hear all the musicians and vocalists who traditionally perform at the wedding ceremonies. They play a variety of music.

The wedding ministry was not very responsive to phone calls or emails. Some times it took weeks to hear back regarding questions or inquires so don't be discouraged. Be persistent. They do have wedding coordinators the day of the wedding to help with the florist, photographer, videographer, etc. They have really thought things through. These volunteers are a great help. They know exactly what needs to be done, where people can go, etc.

Our priest is a wonderful person and we greatly appreciate all the work and effort that went forth into our memorable ceremony. It helps to really get to know your priest before hand so they can connect with you and create a truly wonderful ceremony.
